Bouquet Boutique

Other than her groom and dress, a bride’s bouquet is one of the most intimate decisions to make.  The flowers chosen, textures, colors and shape project the bride’s personal style.  Cedarwood Weddings designers take this decision to heart when helping brides plan their wedding, and we know the power of sharing images for inspiration.   Cedarwood’s blog series “Bouquet Boutique” features some of our design team’s favorite bouquets, along with the “flower recipe” we used to design them and what features we love about each bouquet.  If you see a bouquet that makes your heart skip a beat, share it with a friend.  You can also visit Cedarwood Wedding’s Bouquet Pinterest Board for more delightful designs by our floral design team!

We admit that we are suckers for a color-licious bouquet. We love the organic, ethereal feel of this peachy, pink, and orange bouquet. The colors are varied but each compliments the next so perfectly, it looks like a fine art painting of a summer ripened, juicy Georgia peach.  Paired with draping pepperberry and foraged leafy greenery, this bouquet makes our mouths water.

Dinner Plate Dahlias. This variety of dahlia is exactly as it sounds, as big as a dinner plate. We love to use these statement flowers in larger bouquets. This Cedarwood bride wanted to include fun textural elements such as rosemary, seeded eucalyptus, fern leaf, and daisies. The shape of this bouquet is oblong, and oversized, and our floral designers had so much fun making it!

Sometimes, simplicity makes a big statement. This bouquet is elegant and dainty with a bit of attitude thanks to it’s free form design. The whites, yellows, and oranges are perfectly paired with white sage and greenery for a gorgeous, garden inspired design!  And can we take a moment to talk about the floor-length silk ribbon?  Swoon.

Blush and white florals have stolen the spotlight in the wedding world in the past few years. With such a romantic feel, we can’t help but share the love for blush and white combinations. The Cedarwood design team especially loves this bouquet because it combines many of our favorites flowers. We adore the use of Alstibe and Pieris, dainty flowers that contrast perfectly with the bouquet’s statement flowers. And then there is the flower whose graceful dance has captured our hearts – butterfly ranunculus – this variety’s blush centers tie the soft hues together so perfectly.

Hellebore and pepper berry stoke our heartstrings.  Mix the two together and we feel warm all over.  Hellebore are only available a few months out of the year. They are one of the few flowers that bloom during the winter, but sadly die out by late spring. When available, Hellebore adds an interesting touch. The light pink and mint green touch of this variety of hellebore, next to the bright pink scabiosa and delicate petals of  ranunculus, remind us of a perfect spring-inspired bouquet. Pepperberry and fern flow effortlessly into the design for a romantic-modern, free-form bouquet.

Hello texture, we adore you. Nandina greenery, peonies, colorful garden roses, dahlias, yarrow, and snowberry – all in one bouquet! Nothing on this earth is better to us. The exotic snowberry mixed with the softness of the ranunculus and ethereal vibes from the spirea, make one heavenly bouquet.  We simply cannot get enough of it.
